ROTG Month

>> A Belated Day 5: Constellations<<

The galaxies have never known such a battle. MiM’s parents and their crew fought valiantly, but they were overwhelmed at last. MiM’s parents were captured, and all seemed lost.

Nightlight knew what he must do. Whatever the cost, MiM must not become a Prince of Nightmares! With the diamond dagger held aloft, Nightlight flew bravely forward. He aimed the weapon at Pitch’s heart. There was a blinding flash, then a great explosion!


The Light shone and burned more intensely than twenty suns.


fjagljafkjg I honestly had no idea what I aimed to do with this??? But yeha! There’s this. Nightlight ended up a bit darker toned than intended, and I messed up on making him look like he was glowing ahhh;; I gotta work on that. On the plus-side, while making the lineart my profile perspective got better haha;;;

I think tumblr might’ve affected the quality somewhat?? Idk it looks a lot better on the medibang file I have orz

I’ll be combining the prompts for days 6 and 7 tomorrow I guess;; haha

I see a lot of people mixing Guardians of Childhood books with the Rise of the Guardians movie, and I’m totally into that, I love it when people do that, 

but the books and movie are actually pretty different. I wanted to make a fine line between what is in the books, and what is in the movie. That way, people won’t get confused or we can look at things from a different perspective. 

I probably have left out a lot, and maybe forgotten a few things, but these are just the basics. 

There are still a few books yet to come out for The Guardians of Childhood, so we don’t have full confirmation for a lot of things. 

As for the movie, I really don’t see a sequel happening anytime soon, so I just went with the information we were given. 

Otherwise, feel free to use this as a reference for any art or fan fictions you guys want to make! Any questions? Go ahead and ask~ <3 

~~~~Guardians of Childhood VS Rise of the guardians ~~~~

ROTG Month Day 13: Teamwork!

Sandy is by far the best facilitator of teamwork among the Guardians, in either book!verse or movie!verse, but especially in the film.  I think Pitch knew that, which is why he targeted Sandy first– take out the Sandman, and eventually all the Guardians will fall, because they don’t know how to lean on each other. 

Sandy’s team-ups with Jack in the movie and with Nightlight in the books are some of my favorites!

ROTG Month: Hope

On instagram a few artists in the ROTG fandom put together a thank you project for William Joyce to celebrate the 4th anniversary of the movie. Here’s my entry.

“Bill Joyce, your stories about a Tsar and his knight have brought me more joy than I know how to tell you. Much like the Golden Age, you and the Guardians have opened up a world for me in which there is hope and happiness and dreams can come true. Thank you so much!”

EVERYONE QUIET DOWN AND LISTEN:


I was just going through amazon and checked out the newest book of the Guardians of Childhood saga and I almost had a heart attack.

The new material from William Joyce is: Jack Frost (The Guardians of Childhood). And as I was going over the details of the book when I saw this:

Before Jack Frost was Jack Frost, he was Nightlight, the most trusted and valiant companion of Mim, the Man in the Moon. But when Pitch destroys Mim’s world, he nearly destroys Nightlight too, sending him plunging to Earth where, like Peter Pan, he is destined to remain forever a boy, frozen in time. And while Nightlight has fun sailing icy winds and surfing clouds, he is also lonely without his friend Mim. To keep the cold in his heart from taking over, he spreads it to the landscapes around him and earns a new name: Jack Overland Frost.
But a true friend always comes through, and on one particularly bleak night, Mim shines down and shows Jack a group of children in great peril. Through helping them, Jack finds the warmth he’s been yearning for, and realizes bringing joy to others can melt his own chill. It is this realization—that there will always be children who need moments of bravery, who need rosy cheeks, who need to build snowmen, and who are then eager for a spring day—that makes Jack realize why he is a forever boy, and worthy of becoming a Guardian of Childhood.


I KID YOU NOT GO CHECK THE BOOK DESCRIPTION YOURSELF

WHAT THE HELL? MY MIND CANNOT FOLLOW. The fifth book of the saga isn’t even out yet!

William Joyce are you telling me that I have to wait till 2016 to get any explanation of this? DO YOU WANT TO KILL ME?!

Then what was the back story in the ROTG movie of Jack’s memories. Did Nightlight reincarnated into Jack? What about Nightlight’s and Jack’s powers? Then what happened to Katherine?

UGH, HOW DO I EVEN SHIP STUFF NOW?!

Look at the cover and pay attention to Jack’s shadow!

*MIND EXPLODES*

Somebody tell me what just happened

William Joyce’s Q&A

Check out some of William Joyce’s answers about Rise of the Guardians, The Guardians of Childhood and… the ROTG SEQUEL?!?!

thatbrat: Dear Mr. Joyce, I know many people don’t give him much thought when talking about the movie, Rise of the Guardians, but for me, the character I was able to relate to the most was young Jamie Bennett. I saw so much of myself in him from when I was a child, and can still relate to his wanting to believe in fantastical beings and pursuit for the truth of the supernatural. I also thought his relationship with Jack was especially endearing and significant. So, getting down to it, my question is: can we expect to see more of him, specifically in Guardians of Childhood? Also, if you’ve given any thought to it, what would he be like as a teenager? What would his aspirations be?

WJ: Jamie was our way of giving the audience a sort of identifiable every kid. So as his character took shape we just thought of the things we wanted him to embody that we all had felt about belief and imagination and that sort of fall from grace when you have to accept the fact that a lot of these things aren’t real. But the belief in them is really the most awesome part of the experience, and in the way it makes these characters real. I want to leave Jamie exactly as he is and let people like yourself imagine his further adventures.

KSClaw: Dear Mr. Joyce, where did you get your initial ideas for Nicholas St. North from your Guardian of Childhood series? How did you come up with that he started out as a Bandit King?

WJ: 1. I came up with the idea when i was in the 3rd grade when I saw my first James Bond move with Sean Connery and I thought Santa Claus must be as cool as Sean Connery and I came up with an early idea of what his life must be like: a super cool spy bandit from bandit from long ago.
2. Sort of the same thing it seemed more interesting that he started out as not a totally good guy, but became a good guy because of what happened to him. It was sort of merging Robin Hood and James Bond because Robin Hood was a normal guy and became a hero because of what was going on around him. He became a hero for the underprivileged, and kids are always treated as second class citizens and Santa Claus’ mission was to make their lives easier and inventive and full of imagination.

rareapplepie: Hello! I have a couple of questions of you! 

1. Is there going to be a book for Pitch in the Guardians of Childhood series?
2. Are we going to get a Rise of the Guardians sequel? I’ve heard whispers and rumors, but I wanted to ask you guys~
3. Will there ever be any hope of actually getting good, quality merchandise for Rise of the Guardians? Things like…Jack’s Hoodie, maybe a toy Ruby Memory box, stuffed plushie Nightmares, maybe even something cute like a Sandman Nightight? All of your fans would -love- to have stuff like that!

WJ: Maybe. I’m thinking about. I just finished the Jack Frost book. Everyone who wants a sequel to happen to call Jeffrey Katzenberg at Dreamworks studio, and not to hang up until you talk to him. Tell them how essential it is that another Rise of the Guardians film be made. As for the merchandise, call Jeffrey Katzenberg [laughs] send him telegrams, letters, fruitcakes, pints of blood, anything that’ll get them to do this very simple, profitable, and necessary extension of our global culture. And bless you all.

KSCLaw: What was the inspiration for Bunnymund from Guardians of Childhood, and how chocolate affects him (such as the transformations)?

WJ: The inspiration for Bunnymund was a play from the 1950s – and a movie – called Harvey starting Jimmy Stewart. In which Jimmy Stewart’s best friend is a six foot all knowing all powerful invisible rabbit named Harvey. Harvey is described as a Pooka a creature of Celtic mythology. I loved that play and movie as a kid and I still love it. So I made Bunnymund the last of the Pooka’s and gave them a history that amused and delighted me and I tried to do honor to the original concept of Harvey. The chocolate thing, it just made narrative sense.

JokulFrosti1: William when you were making Rise Of The Guardians do you ever planned on naming Jack’s sister? And if so what would be her name?

WJ: That’s a closely guarded secret, but if you contact Jeffrey Katzenberg at Dreamworks Studios to know the answer in a sequel to Rise of the Guardians I think that’s the best shot you have to knowing the answer.

JokulFrosti1: Did Jack meet his “family” (the one we see in flashbacks in ROTG) between his (as Nightlight) battle with Pitch but before he officially became Jack Frost?

WJ: Yes, but they couldn’t see him.

Comparison of Jack Frost' Death

Alright, so in the movies ya boi drowns in a frozen lake as a result of saving his sister apparently

Meanwhile, in the books:

Nightlight pretty much: I have fulfilled my purpose. :) There’s no need for a Nightlight anymore. :))

aND THEN, ONCE YOU BRUSH OFF JOYCE’S SUGAR COATING, YA BOI /DROWNS HIMSELF/ (smiling??? Fucking hell im crying) AND MANNY GOES “FUCK SHIT WTF” and then he’s revived and,,, he’s Jack Frost

I’m

@ joyce: what the FUCK are you doing to this poor kid

Entropy Following Antithesis 

inktober day 6

Piercing the nightmare king’s heart, Nightlight was sucked into the very being of the dark emperor.
Eliciting the fusion of their powers, a state of antithesis was formed between them… Both falling crippled into a state of entropy…

 and there, cold stone beneath the body they were both trapped in, they laid for hundreds of years. Waiting and wishing for the day they’d separate and be free once more…

tfw you learn that not only did your friend group pick you up to replace a previous friend, but that you are the last living remnant of said friend, and also all your memories of your human life are probably a lie

anyway im ready for guardians chapter book 5 how bout you guys
